Item Description: Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, 1928. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. First American Edition. (no dust jacket) [spine a little turned, moderate fading to spine cloth, a little wear at extremities, extremely light fraying to cloth at bottom corners, some foxing on title page]. (frontispiece) First American edition (although "Printed in Great Britain," per the copyright page) of Meyrink's first novel, a mystical and dreamlike tale of the Prague ghetto, first published serially in Germany in 1913 and in book form in 1915. To the extent that the title evokes anything today, it's less likely to be this book than the three German silent "Golem" films (made in 1914, 1917 and 1920, all directed by and starring Paul Wegener) -- although they were derived from the original Golem legend, not from the novel. (The Golem, in Jewish legend, is a physical manifestation of the collective psyche of the ghetto's inhabitants; as pictured in the Wegener films, of which only one is extant, he's kind of a giant, lumbering Pillsbury Doughboy with a Buster Brown haircut.)
